Gender pay gap for marketers three times national average

Gender pay gap for marketers three times national average

The gender pay gap faced by female marketers is considerably greater than the national average, according to data from industry publication Marketing Week.

As part of its 2020 Career and Salary Survey, the magazine found that the overall mean gender pay gap for full-time marketing professionals stood at 28%. By way of comparison, the national gender pay gap as calculated by the Office of National Statistics is 8.9%.

As part of its survey, which was based on a sample size of almost 4,000 respondents, Marketing Week also set out to explore the differences in pay for marketing professionals working in different sectors. Its analysis found that the sports sector performed the best with a gender pay gap of 14%, whilst at the other end of the scale, female marketers in the charity and non-profit sector earned 47% less than their male counterparts.

Other headline findings from the 2020 survey include:

  • 52.1% of UK-based respondents are based in London and the South East, with the Midlands (9.5%) the next most popular marketing region
  • 88% of respondents identify as being white
  • 82% of respondents define themselves as having come from an upper-middle, middle or lower-middle class background, compared to just 17% who said they were from a working-class background.

"After finishing university I was looking for paid legal work which is very hard to come by on a temporary basis. Juice were fully professional yet had a friendly approach to finding me a job and succeeded. I am now working in a field that I love and couldn't thank them more!"

Rebecca Beech - Summer Temporary Worker

"I have worked for several different agencies in my working life and Juice Personnel is in my opinion the friendliest and most helpful team of people I have come across. They go out of their way to help and support their clients. I would happily recommend them. I am excited about my new journey that I didn't feel was possible. I mean every word of this Thanks all!! "

Lisa Baker - Temporary Worker

"I can not thank Juice enough for there kind professional help towards me getting a new job. I was out of work at the time and starting to panic about what to do next but Juice reassured me and found me the perfect job and was by my side right to the end and after my third interview with the company I got the job! Juice was always on hand if I ever needed them for advice on interviews or there afterwards to let them know how I got on. I highly recommend Juice to anyone. Thank you again!"

Jessica Rowley - Placed in a permanent position

"We have never used a recruitment agency before so needed an agency that understood what we needed and who we could build a long term partnership with. Juice have been great and found us a candidate who was a perfect fit for our business."

Northern Media

"We have worked with Juice for the last five years and they know what calibre of driver we need to fit our company and the customers we serve. They provide drivers that understand the importance of the level of fluency that is required for the role they take on while driving for us here at Malcolm’s. I may also add that the staff at Juice are very friendly and always willing to help at any time."

Tim Cullen - Transport Team, W H Malcolm

"Juice Personnel, is an extremely friendly, down to earth recruitment agency, whom I have used twice in my young professional career. The first being back in 2010, when I had first graduated and a little lost in the world of employment. They secured me a great temporary job, in which I had requested and in turn, developed in to a full time position. Since then, after moving on, traveling the world, I again found myself in the position of looking for a career change. I instantly remembered the amazing service and supportive nature of Juice and called them to help me find my current position. I cannot thank them enough for their helpful, friendly and supportive role, which they took in finding my new career and could not recommend them enough to others! Thank you Bex and the rest of Juice for all your efforts!"

Hannah Raison - Permanent Candidate

"Juice Personnel is a professionally run and maintained agency with the great ability to balance work to its many members of staff, a very difficult task of late. I am often asked why I have been with Juice so long - 10 dedicated years. Having been to other agencies, they quite honestly just don't compare to Juice is my stock answer. I also tell them that after being with Juice for so many years my wages have never been late; this is very important as you know what you are going to get. So why change something that is right? Dedicated Juice Professional. 10 Years and counting. "

Ian Jenkins - Class 1 Driver
